The mother of a 14-year-old boy with a foetal alcohol disorder says her son was left to roam the streets of Dunedin while staying in a hotel under the care of Oranga Tamariki. This follows revelations about a case in Hastings, where a 12-year-old boy charged over an aggravated robbery was able to escape the agency's care three times in one week.
